One-by-one his patients are getting well. One-by-one they are targeted by a serial killer more fatal than their disease. Rev. Earnest Sanders. His ultra-conservative Holy Crusade Church saw the disease as God's vengeance on a lustful, sin-ridden generation of the damned. And God's will could not be denied. Lieutenant Bernstein.
